TRB's Southwest Nutcracker
Tucson Regional Ballet's "Southwest Nutcracker" - featuring live musical accompaniment by the Tucson Symphony Orchestra and guest dancers formerly with the Joffrey Ballet!
The original, full length classical ballet translates the traditional Nutcracker to Tucson in the 1880's complete with the battle of the coyotes and the US Cavalry. Watching a Southwest Nutcracker, you travel with young Maria (Clara) and the Nutcracker General over the glistening, falling snow of Mt. Lemmon to a Desert Dream of Chili Peppers, Mama Pinata and the waltzing Desert Poppies.
The live musical accompaniment, lovely costumes and breathtaking, professionally designed sets; along with the giant growing Christmas Tree, enhance the strong TRB dancing.
Guy Atchley has captured the beauty of the dancers and the engaging story with absolute perfection! Enjoy!
